DIY Freestanding Mobile Pipe Coat Rack

Holiday season! That means some entertaining in our home, get-togethers with families, dinner parties (having a holiday open house today, in fact).  Time to get holiday guest ready! Did you ever notice that your own family fills up the coat closet (sometimes to the point of “avalanche!” when opening the door? Or is that just us?!)…and when guests arrive in colder months, coats are stored in the guest bedroom in a pile on a bed? Our solution: 

DIY galvanized pipe and wood mobile coat rack on casters @diyshowoff #lowescreator

A DIY moveable, mobile coat rack. I am so over the utility types that teeter, lean or fall over when filled up. Know what I mean? This industrial looking DIY coat rack is sturdy, not to mention adds a touch of rustic industrial style.

Materials I used:

  • (1) 48 inch stair tread (I used red oak but for a more budget friendly option, there was also pine)
  • Rust-Oleum Ultimate Wood Stain (color is kona and ebony)
  • foam brush for applying stain, gloves & rags, paint brush for applying polyurethane
  • Rust-Oleum Polyurethane sealer (finish is satin)
  • (4) heavy duty casters 
  • (2) 3/4″ flanges
  • (2) 24″ galvanized steel pipes
  • (2) 30″ galvanized pipes
  • (2) 3/4″ tee connectors
  • (2) 3/4″ nipple connectors
  • (2) 3/4″ 90 degree elbows
  • (2) 3/4″ 90 degree street elbows
  • (2) 3/4″ caps
  • (1) 36″ galvanized pipe
  • #12 1 inch hexagon washers (screws)

What I did:

Soak the sticker parts of the galvanized pipes in hot soapy water. (It doesn’t take long.) Remove stickers. Dry pipes and set aside. 

DIY galvanized pipe and wood mobile coat rack on casters @diyshowoff #lowescreator

Finish the wood. Using the foam brush, I applied the wood stain (brush on in the same direction as the wood grain). Let sit for a few minutes then wipe away the excess with old rags. Unlike pine, the red oak wasn’t absorbing my favorite kona colored stain in as rich of a color so I also applied two coats of ebony in the same way to achieve a darker color. Stain then dries in about an hour. 

DIY galvanized pipe and wood mobile coat rack on casters @diyshowoff #lowescreator

After the stain was dry, I sealed the wood using a coat of polyurethane. Simply brush on (looks a bit milky when wet but dries clear). I let that dry overnight. 

I attached the four casters to the under (unfinished) side using the hexagon screws. Be careful with the screws on the cut side of the wood. Going too close to the edge may cause the wood to crack. 

DIY galvanized pipe and wood mobile coat rack on casters @diyshowoff #lowescreator

Flip right side up. Set aside the nipple connectors, two street elbows and the caps. 

Next I assembled my pipe pieces. Starting with the flanges. Screw 30″ pipes into flanges.

DIY galvanized pipe and wood mobile coat rack on casters @diyshowoff #lowescreator Then add tees to the other end of each 30″ pipe.

DIY galvanized pipe and wood mobile coat rack on casters @diyshowoff #lowescreator

 

Then add the other 30″ pipe sections (one to each tee – you’ll have two poles at this point).

DIY galvanized pipe and wood mobile coat rack on casters @diyshowoff #lowescreator

Add a 90 degree elbow to the top of one pole.

DIY galvanized pipe and wood mobile coat rack on casters @diyshowoff #lowescreator

Connect the 36″ galvanized pipe (center) piece. Add a 90 degree elbow to the end of the center pipe piece then add the other pole.  

DIY galvanized pipe and wood mobile coat rack on casters @diyshowoff #lowescreator

Place the pole-contraption onto the wood stair riser (I found the center by using a yard stick).  Attach flanges to the wood using the hex screws.

DIY galvanized pipe and wood mobile coat rack on casters @diyshowoff #lowescreator

Add nipple connectors to the center tees, then elbows then caps. This creates a space for hanging purses, hats or scarves. 

DIY galvanized pipe and wood mobile coat rack on casters @diyshowoff #lowescreator

Now when we’re expecting guests, we can simply roll the coat rack near the door for hanging coats. Or use it as extra hanging space in a room without a closet (or one with a packed closet). Handy to have in the laundry room too! 

DIY galvanized pipe and wood mobile coat rack on casters @diyshowoff #lowescreator DIY galvanized pipe and wood mobile coat rack on casters @diyshowoff #lowescreator

Store it in the basement, a closet, the laundry room, an office or guest room and then move near the door for parties and gatherings. Or if you have room, display near the front door entryway or mudroom area.

DIY Book Ends

Back to school time! Time to restock the desk area for homework assignments and school projects. Add cute set of DIY book ends to perk things up. 

A to Z book ends tutorial @diyshowoff

As a part of the Michael’s Makers team, I have the opportunity to create a monthly themed project. This month’s challenge is “Back to School”. A bit of a ‘challenge’ when your nest is empty but these will work in grand-baby boy’s nursery too. ;)

What I used: 

  • 4  wood blocks 
  • wood glue and clamps
  • scrapbook paper and scrapbook cards
  • multi-surface acrylic craft paint and foam brush
  • gloss finish decoupage and foam brush
  • {thin} washi tape
  • letter A
  • letter Z
  • hot glue gun & glue

DIY Show Off back to school book ends tutorial

What I did:

Start with applying a bead of wood glue to each block to create an “L” shape. Clamp, wipe away any excess glue and let dry. 

DIY Show Off back to school book ends tutorial #michaelsmakers

Once glue was dry, I removed the clamps and applied a ‘white wash’ look using a foam brush and multi-surface acrylic craft paint. I only applied one coat so that the wood grain still showed through. Let dry. 

DIY Show Off back to school book ends tutorial #michaelsmakers

Cut scrapbook paper to size for inside of the “L” shape and the outside of the vertical wood piece. I used scrapbook paper and cute patterned scrapbook cards. 

DIY Show Off back to school book ends tutorial #michaelsmakers

Apply a coat of decoupage to one side at a time as a glue. Place scrapbook paper onto decoupaged surface. Smooth out air bubbles. Apply another coat of decoupage over the scrapbook paper, sealing it. I brushed on the decoupage in the same direction as the wood grain. Repeat decoupage + scrapbook paper to all sides. Decoupage will go on with a ‘milky’ look but dry transparent. 

DIY Show Off back to school book ends tutorial #michaelsmakers

Add washi tape to sides, smooth out bubbles/make sure it’s adhered. Apply a coat of decoupage to seal. *There’s also the option to apply the decoupage before the washi tape to act as a ‘glue’. 

DIY Show Off back to school book ends tutorial #michaelsmakers

Apply a second coat of decoupage to all surfaces. I let mine dry overnight. 

Attach wood “A” and “Z” using hot glue gun. Wouldn’t they be cute with succulent planters, plastic animals, vases, figurines instead too? 

DIY Show Off back to school book ends tutorial #michaelsmakers

Once hot glue sets, you’re good to go!

DIY Pipe Fitting Wooden Coat Rack Tutorial

This little seating area is great for putting on shoes and a quiet pet resting place and I love the vintage mould (I think that’s what the chalkboard is hanging on) but you know what? I was ready for a change. Surprise, surprise! haha!

eclectic-hallway

Time to get creative and since we love pipe and wood projects for a bit of a rustic industrial style (see this), those are the materials I used to create a pipe fitting wooden coat rack. 

What I used:

DIY pipe coat hooks

  • Three 3/8 inch galvanized flanges
  • Three 3/8 inch 90 degree elbows
  • Three 3/8 inch black caps
  • Three 3/8 inch x close steel pipe nipples
  • Twelve 3/4 inch sheet metal screws (these fit nicely for securing the flanges to wood)
  • RustOleum Universal Metallic spray paint + primer (oil rubbed bronze)
  • Scrap 1 x 6 pine board 
  • RustOleum Ultimate wood stain (Kona)
  • RustOleum Ultimate polyurethane
  • 2 drywall anchors and screws (to secure to wall)

What I did:

1. I connected my pipe fittings in this order: flange, nipple, elbow, nipple, cap.

DIY pipe coat hooks @diyshowoff

2. Then I gave them a few light coats of spray paint and let dry. 

DIY pipe coat hooks @diyshowoff

3. I cut my scrap pine board to 30 inches.

DIY pipe coat hooks @diyshowoff

4. Then sanded the edges smooth and wiped clean. 

DIY pipe coat hooks @diyshowoff

5. Next using a foam paint brush, I applied the wood stain and let it sit for a couple of minutes. You’ll want to wear gloves!

DIY pipe coat hooks @diyshowoff

6. Then wiped away the stain with an old rag and let it dry.

DIY pipe coat hooks @diyshowoff

7. After about an hour, I brushed on the polyurethane and let it dry according to manufacturer’s instructions.

8. Once everything was dry, I secured the first pipe hook to the center of my wood plank. Then secured the other two.

9. I attached it to the wall using drywall anchors and screws.

DIY Show Off key holder

I don’t know about you but I LOVE craft supplies like cork, burlap, unfinished, twine, jute…all things “natural and earthy”. I feel like I could just start a collection of natural materials with no crafting plans…they’re all just so pretty! But since this isn’t blog isn’t titled  “Hoard Show Off”, let’s get to the ‘how to’!

DIY Hanging Organizer (for peg hooks)

How do you add a fun pop of color to an otherwise neutral room? Try Pantone’s Color of the Year for something you may not normally choose. The Lowe’s Creative Idea March challenge was to use Valspar’s Radiant Orchid. Just a small touch adds elegance to my white and gray space. 

Pantone Color of the Year Radiant Orchid

Inspired by PB’s Gabrielle system, I created a wooden peg hook organizing caddy from scrap wood. 

DIY Hanging Organizer Tutorial

Materials I used: Most of my wood was purchased at Lowe’s and is left over from previous projects with the exception of the .50 yard sale find piece shown below. Adjust measurements according to your own needs or scrap wood measurements. Inexpensive pine works well for this project.

  • 1″ x 10″ x 18 1/2″ (back)
  • 1″ x 6″ x 18 1/2″ (bottom)
  • 1″ x 2″ x 4″ (sides)
  • 1″ x 2″ x 18 1/2″ (front)
  • 1″ deep (or however thick your peg hook rack is)  x 1″ tall  x 6″ wide (back stop piece)
  • Gorilla Wood Glue
  • 1 1/2″ wood screws
  • Wood filler
  • Valspar Radiant Orchid 

What I did:

Mark the center top of the back piece of wood. Hold up to a peg on your coat rack, lining the center with the center of a peg. On the wood, mark the center of each peg placement.

DIY peg hook caddy tutorial

Decide which hole saw bit is just a little bigger than the pegs. 

DIY peg hook caddy tutorial

You’ll want your holes to be near the top end. I used a ruler to measure down about 2″ from the top and a level to make a cross mark to show the center of each hole. Drill tiny pilot holes where the pencil marks meet.

DIY peg hook caddy tutorial

Attach the hole saw bit to your drill and using the pilot hole as a guide for the center drill bit, drill/cut holes. I think our hole saw bit is a little dull so the back side of my wood is splintered. (Thankfully no one will see that side!)

DIY peg hook caddy tutorial

Sand and wipe clean all wood pieces. Hang on pegs to ensure holes line up.

DIY peg hook caddy tutorial

Using wood glue, wood screws and clamps, assemble your caddy and let dry. I attached my screws from the bottom and back so they weren’t seen but you could also countersink screws, fill and sand.

DIY peg hook caddy tutorial

I thought that was it for the construction until I tested it hanging on my peg hooks. Oops, front heavy. Using just wood glue and a clamp, I attached the back stop piece to the center bottom of the back. This ensures that the caddy will hang level.

DIY peg hook caddy tutorial

Using wood filler, fill all seams and cracks. Let dry, sand smooth and wipe clean. 

DIY peg hook caddy tutorial

Paint the entire wood caddy. Mine took two coats. Radiant Orchid wouldn’t have been my first choice but it’s growing on me and it’s nice to do something bold and fun for a change. I love the Valspar sample size paint…more than enough and perfect for adding colorful accents. Down the road all it takes is a new coat of a different color to re-freshen things up.

Now I have a shelf/tray for decorative items, toiletries in the bathroom

Bathroom Makeover

The other day I shared the before and after bathroom transformation. I’ve gone from sitting and staring all day long at our recently finished open pantry (makeover here) to wanting to sleep in my new peaceful bathroom. Since the bathroom had was a nightmare before, ANYTHING would look good after. This is what we got with this old farmhouse…

Before – yikes! bathroom makeover before

And this is the potential I saw. I’m in love with the soft peaceful ‘after’ results! Bathroom Makeover

Bathroom Makeover Details at DIYShowOff

Paint: Those walls! Believe me, I did a good scrubbing but is there any better way to really clean up walls than applying a fresh coat of paint? Love this color! Valspar Pale Linen: Depending on light, sometimes it has a soothing blue tint, sometimes more of a gray/white tone but definitely a tranquil light blue color.

Vanity: The gorgeous Huntshire vanity with marble countertop and Talia faucet set from Virtu USA is the luxurious center of attention! Check out the beautiful detail and gorgeous espresso color.

Virtu USA Huntshire vanity

Metallics: Mixing the silver finishes like the brushed nickel faucets, polished nickel sconces, polished nickel vanity knobs, satin nickel curtain rod add just the right amount of bling!

Virtu USA Talia faucet - DIYShowOff bathroom makeover

The vanity comes with beautiful antique gold hardware which I’ll re-use on another piece of furniture since I swapped them out for these beautiful polished nickel knobs.

Pottery Barn Bevel Mirror: Go big or go home! {Heavy! Molly bolts included.} The mirror’s beveled mirror frame is the perfect glamorous accessory reflecting light and the illusion of more space into this small bathroom.

Lighting: Drool-worthy. ::sigh:: Thanks to LampsPlus for the stunning lighting! {Hudson Valley Monroe polished nickel adjustable wall lights} These are just the icing on the cake, aren’t they? Definitely my most favorite fixture in my home!

Lamps Plus Monroe Adjustable Arm Sconce

Floor: I did this all by myself! Would you believe they’re vinyl tiles? Easy to install and grout (use grout for vinyl) gives it a look so similar to real marble but without the maintenance or cost and installed in just a few hours! Check back for the tutorial.

Renia’s beautiful tree for the Christmas Tree Contest.

Renia's Christmas Tree

DIY {wall mounted} Pallet Shelf

Mr. DIY’s hobby isn’t DIY {it’s mainly mine and I take full advantage of his muscle power}. He does have several hobbies including cooking (lucky me!), grilling on his Big Green Egg (lucky me again!) and home-brewing. Not my thing…but I do think being a ‘beer-chemist’ is kinda cool and he enjoys it. Hey, those hobbies are DIY in a way.

homebrew

The problem: Supplies and materials are often scattered in the basement, hiding in built-ins in the dining room, sitting around in the kitchen driving me crazy or just ‘lost’ sparking a lot of temper tantrums and wasting precious free time on the hunt for supplies. And when he finally has a free weekend to cook up a recipe, he’s often searching for empty bottles, caps, hops, grains, what-nots and tools-of-the-trade. Or more often, “I” become detective in the search because I’ve probably stowed something away where it doesn’t below in an effort to de-clutter. Oops!

The solution: Making the space in the open basement stairwell an organized home brew supply station, library, storage area with a fun rustic/industrial vibe. Everything in it’s place, easy to find.

We’re starting with a wall-mounted pallet shelf for holding an empty bottle collection. The bonus: {I love that this project is all about making his hobby more enjoyable and it inspired us to work together as a team, a date night or two at Lowe’s.}

diy-wall-mounted-pallet-shelf

Materials:

  • Pallet 
  • Three 1 x 3 x 4 pine wood planks
  • Rustoleum’s Ultimate Wood Stain (color: Kona)
  • Rustoleum Polyurethane (matte finish)
  • 2 Purdy 2.5 inch angled paint brush for stain/poly
  • Rags
  • Hanging Hardware (wall anchors, screws, toggle bolts)

Tools we used:

  • Crow bar
  • Hammer
  • Nail gun (finishing nails)
  • Saw
  • Dremel Multi-Max (sanding)
  • Drill (hanging)

DIY Pallet Shelf Tutorial

1. After we found the perfect pallet (tips about working with pallet wood from Funky Junk Interiors), we decided to use the back of the pallet as the front of the shelf and removed 1 plank using a crow bar and hammer. {How about those wool socks with flip flops? He’s all mine, ladies!}

prying-pallet-wood

pallet-before

2. Measure and cut the 1 x 3 x 4’s to fit between the front and back pallet planks to create “shelves”.

diy-pallet-shelf

3. Position the 1 x 3 shelf bottom into place. We used a level to ensure shelf bases weren’t crooked. Some places were a little tricky and needed hammering into place or lifting the old pallet plank a tad with a crow bar, while positioning the 1 x 3 into place.

pallet-shelves

4. A finishing nail gun (and a good eye for lining up the nails in the 1 inch area) secures the shelf bottom to the sides of the individual shelves. {Forgot pictures of the nail gun step…it’s just so much fun!}

We added a few screws to some of the pallet face-boards to tighten things up.

diy-pallet-shelf

5. Sand all sides and splinters.

6. Stain. I used Rustoleum’s Ultimate Wood Stain.

rustoleum-ultimate-wood-stain

Brush on in the direction of the wood grain. Wipe away in the same direction with a rag. Rustoleum Wood Stain dries fast! {Not shown: I did wear latex gloves to avoid stained hands.} Isn’t this rich dark brown gorgeous? It’s called “Kona”. Love it!

staining-pallet-shelf

7. About an hour later, I was ready to seal the stained wood. Using the same technique, I applied Rustoleum’s Polyurethane and let it dry for 24 hours.

8. Hang! I used FrogTape for marking the area we wanted the pallet shelf to hang.

hanging-pallet-shelf

I marked the studs with a chalk line.

finding-wall-stud

Wall color: homemade chalkboard paint using Benjamin Moore Hale Navy.

We used 6 drywall screws {screwed into the wall studs} to secure our pallet shelf to the wall.

hanging-diy-pallet-shelf

I have to say, he doesn’t always see my vision, but once things are put into action and start coming together, he loves it! He spent about 30 minutes styling his new pallet shelf, stepping back and re-arranging it over and over. Success! And just like completing one DIY project leads to more, this little pallet shelf inspired a lot more creative ideas for his home brew supply space/beer library. Keeping things organized so stay tuned!

styling-diy-pallet-shelf

Organized, right? What do you think?

diy-pallet-shelf

The plan: A place for everything and more DIY:

  • A DIY light fixture.
  • Built-in shelves on the wall above the ledge for supplies.
  • Ladder for reaching high shelves.
  • Slate tiled stairs and landing.
  • More inspiration: laboratory/brewery/library Pinterest board.

homebrew-organization

Ps. DIY dates inspire daydreaming and communication (sometimes the occasional fight with the opportunity to make up too!). Do you enjoy working on DIY projects with your spouse? Do little projects inspire bigger dreams?

First project of 2013

You may be wondering what I’ve been up to. Where have I been? Besides cursing my camera for starting off 2013 with a non-working auto-focus which forces me to use my iphone camera.

Well, I’ve been right here at home. Working on some no pressure sorts of things at an easy pace. The first of the year had me packing up Christmas

Christmas ornaments

which led to organizing the basement…because I sort of messed it up digging out Christmas decorations and piled up empty boxes in a hurry to resume making the upstairs pretty for the holidays.

DIY Show Off Christmas Home Tour

All of the decorations are in hiding and the basement clean up is nearly wrapped up. Our scary OLD OLD OLD part of the basement will never be pretty but I do love the additional storage space it provides.  {never say never. I could win the lottery and then…possibilities!} Be warned. These pictures of a 90 year old basement are not for the faint of heart and do look as if they’re still-shots from “Hoarders” {hence, no watermarking. lol!}…not something you’re going to see in the next issue of House Beautiful:

basement mess

Of course it was one of those “make a bigger mess” before it looks better types of projects”.

  • Dig EVERYTHING out.
  • Unpack boxes and storage containers.
  • Purge.
  • Create a pile for donating.
  • Fill 3 garbage bags.
  • Have tissues on hand…dust can induce sneezing and a runny nose.
  • Wash dirty hands every 30 minutes.
  • Listen to happy upbeat music, sing, dance throughout the obstacle course you created.
  • Separate and organize things in to related piles.
  • Pack neatly and in an organized fashion.
  • Label boxes and containers.
  • Pile it all back up where it will fit.

This may take days. Family might send out a search party. You’ll need a shower with lots of scrubbing. Oh, and lotion for those extra dry hands.

You may wonder why the heck you’ve been hoarding 584 empty boxes of various sizes.

I organized some decorative accents I like having on hand. It’s like my own secret store for shopping from home.

shopping from home

Must have spray paint supply…

spray paint supply

I even managed to create a work space using an old farmhouse table. It’s not much of a “project” in the way of fun or pretty or a “oOoOohhh” reveal. But you know how much better it feels to get chaos under control, right?

And it feels sort of like nesting for adding a furbaby to our home in the near future. I want everything to be perfect…even the scary old spidery dusty basement that no one but me sees. Oh and well now, you‘ve had a glimpse too. I know you’re torn between feeling honored and horrified. Sorry about that.

And, all that lead to finding the chartreuse paint that I used on the apartment door…

apartment door

{Valspar Guilded Pesto}

because yes, the boxes of apartment renovation supplies have been sitting unpacked, haphazardly tossed in a corner from the car. For months. And cleaning/organizing the older part of the basement meant putting those things away too. Finally.

And where am I going with this? Organizing the basement, finding the left over paint? Well that lead to an unplanned mini-project upstairs which I’ll share with you tomorrow.

I’ve shown sneak peeks of the apartment renovation progress and you’ve likely seen the herringbone-like accent wall in the kitchen area…

Base paint color: True Value Easy Care – Baby Elephant (soft neutral gray) & Accent color: True Value Easy Care – Sweet Honey

Since we own this rental space, I was able to get a little creative in adding a fun accent wall as a backdrop behind some open shelving. Before paint…

apartment walls before

Yes…I have ‘plans’ for a DIY radiator cover but I must confess that I feel it’s a LOT ambitious and I’m scared. Working up the courage to give it a try sometime this month. Anyway, after paint {including painting kitchen cabinets and Rustoleum Countertop Transformations}:

The open wall space above the wainscoting was the perfect spot to display open shelving as a solution for more storage/organization in this tiny apartment. True Value’s Easy Care Platinum and FrogTape were all I needed to add some interest to a flat textured wall. The pattern also helps disguise the un-hidden pipes. I put together a quick tutorial video using my iphone {pardon the portrait orientation, poor quality…amateur videographer but working hard on getting better!} explaining how I achieved the herringbone pattern:

The wall was finished and I was so happy to be able to move forward on the renovation! Shelves are budget friendly Ekby shelving and brackets from IKEA… IKEA Ekby

{installation was super easy using the Master Mechanic Swift Driver!}

Woo hoo! painted accent wall And just when I felt super good about a little DIY success, something went wrong upstairs with the plumbing. The joys of DIY… upstairs plumbing leak I was just too exhausted and heartbroken to deal with it. My Mr. DIY fixed the plumbing issue in the bathroom above and Bri’s boyfriend, Steve, saved the day by patching the ceiling below. patching ceiling textured ceiling and I set about touching up the paint… touching up paint Now, all done for real… herringbone accent wall If you missed it yesterday, I shared the hardwood floors before/after refinishing:

Get organized with Homezada

I recently learned about Homezada.com, a source for us (homeowners) to keep all of the data about our home organized and safe online. I’ve found that the site offers some really helpful tools. Here are a few reasons I think you’ll find it helpful too:

homezada

1. With DIY being one of our priorities, my favorite tool at Homezada is the project manager where I can track my budget and spending. It also allows me to save, compare and track online (and offline) purchases. Love the little button I can drag to my tool bar to make saving products I’m researching right to my list. It’s great for updating home inventory too…something I really need to do.

homezada home improvement

2. I can document all of my possessions by uploading photos (even via mobile!) and scanning receipts. I’m so bad with that but the option to use my iphone to upload and tag photos to my account makes it much more convenient. I can also save warranties, document values for insurance purposes and scan and save important documents…and having all of this information backed up on an online storage cloud means no hunting through piles of papers, file cabinets or losing passwords. It can also be accessed from anywhere, not just my home office.

3. Another task we’re really bad with is remembering to change furnace filters or check smoke detector batteries. Homezada has an option for help with maintaining our home by personalizing a property calendar. And in case you’re like me and draw a blank on what I should be checking, we can browse over 150 recommendations and synchronize with my online calendar with automated reminders so I don’t forget. Now when Mr. DIY says, “remind me to…fill in the blank”, I’ll sound like I have it together when I actually do remind him to clean the chimney!

4. Sound overwhelming? Don’t worry – everything is organized and upon logging into your account, the “latest news” section will help keep you stay on track. Easy and helpful. I just take one look at my overstuffed file cabinet, a pile of receipts and forms in a “to file” pile and THAT is definitely overwhelming!

homezada

Homezada’s mission is to provide homeowners with a site where they can get more organized managing their home, save some money maintaining and improving their home, and be better prepared in case a disaster, home fire, or burglary where to occur.  I’m a new member and being able to start to store all of my home maintenance, home inventory and home project needs all in one place online makes me feel organized and safe.

Thrifty Treasures – Chalkboard Tins

I’m sharing a small thrifty treasure makeover today at The DIY Club.

I used Deco Art Americana paint in Wedgewood Blue and Deep Midnight Blue + Deco Art’s new chalkboard medium (clear matte coat that transforms any painted surface into a chalkboard).

Old tins + Deco Art = fun new storage. See the “how to” at The DIY Club.

Kids’ Closet Project

Hello! I’m Christina from No. 29 Design. Thank you so much to Roeshel for asking me to guest post. I’ve very honored since I’m still a newborn in blogland! I thought I’d share with you a project I’ve been working on and am happy to say it is done!

No. 29 Design
My boys closet got stripped of it doors a while back to make room for the Ikea Expedit I put inside. It has freed up the rest of the room to fit in two twin beds as well as plenty of play space. It stays organized and all those bins hold clothes and some toys. All in all it works great, except for the top. I can’t take the bar down which holds the clothes on either side. Seeing everything stored on the top shelf of the closet does not make me happy. I’d put more “stuff” but then I’d see that too, so I’m limiting my storage capability.

DO IT YOURSELF – do something this weekend.

It’s calling for snow here. The warmer temps were just a tease. Snow for me means staying at home. Just some quick, easy ideas for motivation all to start somewhere small this weekend to accomplish something productive. For me, it always leads to bigger things. Taking 15 minutes to do one of these, almost always inspires me to work a little longer and accomplish a little more.  Here is what works for me:

  • Clean off the kitchen counters. Before I know it, I’m scrubbing things down, sweeping the floor, wiping down the fridge. I love a clean kitchen. marble subway tile, back splash, do it yourself, virginia mist granite, hanging mugs
  • Sort through a junk drawer. Organize chaotic papers and receipts, put ‘quick clean shoved’ items where they belong. Having everything where it belongs feels so good. craft room, organization, vintage, craft supplies, home office
  • Make the bed. In our home, this doesn’t happen daily but taking a minute to make the bed = picking up clothes, dusting and rearranging decor. I love when that happens! poster bed with curtains, turquoise and orange, do it yourself, bedroom makeover
  • Actually look at craft supplies and materials, then browse Pinterest for an idea. Time to get creative! craft supplies, organization, ribbon storage

Do you have do-it-yourself plans this weekend? I do! Mine involves primer and paint. How about you?

DIY Triple Clipboard

We’re working on a special area for Mr. DIY.  Here’s one of the things we made for the area:

DIY Triple Clipboard Tutorial
Materials:
Board (I used a pre-cut unfinished wooden shelf base, approx. 4′ x 12′ x 1″)
Vinyl Chalkboard Tags from Ten23 Designs
Screws to secure to wall (or Dischangers)
1.  I used the Rockler TransTint Dye to stain my piece of wood which will be the back of my clipboard. (Mix according to instructions – add more for darker/less for lighter color).
2.  Allow to dry.
3.  Measure and divide board into 3 equal sections (I used a Sharpie – I don’t mind the line showing to separate the clipboard areas).

4.  Peel and stick vinyl chalkboard tags into place. I placed mine above the area I intend to secure the clip.
5.  Layout clips and mark where pilot holes need to be drilled.
6.  Drill pilot holes.
7.  Attach clips using screws provided.

(Oh – I wasn’t fond of the brassy color so I gave mine a coat of antique gold spray paint and splattered with a darker brown for an ‘old’ look).

8.  All done and ready to hang (we secured to the wall using drywall screws into studs but using Dischangers will allow your clipboard to be more mobile for moving).

More on this clipboard’s specific purpose coming up! You’ll never guess.  :)

Ps. Still working on the subscription issues…I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the full post shows in the feed today!  EDIT:  It looks like the full post is in the feed but images are not.  Back to the drawing board! Thank you so much for your patience!

DIY Project Parade: Closet Doors – How to Turn BiFold Doors into French Doors

I love this blog day at the DIY Show Off! I finished up the bi-fold doors. Finally!  Only they’re not bi-fold doors anymore!  Woo hoo!
The doors before:

The doors after (see tips on painting shuttered doors here):

But they were still functioning as bi-fold doors. Bi-fold doors are a great space saver in hallways or for laundry rooms, but not necessary in a bedroom. I wanted them to function as French doors.  Super easy to do!

(Dressing Room Sneak Peek!)
Closets Before had curtains for a few years – I hated that wood tone that much!
BIFOLD CLOSET DOORS become FRENCH DOORS…
How to:

The doors were installed as usual in the outer corners. (My doors only have an upper track, the bottom is held in place with a bracket in the corners on the floor – no slider on the floor.)

Remove plastic that keeps the door on track from the upper inner corner. (The upper outer one near the wall will stay in the original track, remove the other top inner plastic.) Mine look like this:

Measure where the door closes and magnetic hardware will need to be place for doors to close and catch.
Start with pilot holes.

Install metal cupboard door hardware (the ‘catch’ piece) onto the track itself, so it hangs down to meet where the magnetic piece is going to be placed on the actual door.

Attach the other piece of the magnetic cupboard door hardware to the door itself, making sure that it lines up with the metal piece on the track so it will catch and stay closed. (Mark and drill pilot holes first.)

These are perfect for keeping the closet doors closed and so easy. Best of all – it doesn’t alter the door itself so if the day comes when you want bi-fold doors again, no problem.  Repeat for all doors (4 in our case).
Stop the folding action by using mending plates:

Three on each door near the top, in the middle and on the bottom.

Mark.

Drill pilot holes.

Attach.

Now the doors don’t fold anymore – but can be easily turned back to bi-fold doors. Permanent for only as long as you want them to be permanent.

Door knobs are from Hobby Lobby (1/2 off of $5.99 each!!!)

Big improvement!
Since this is my dressing room, I liked the freedom to get creative.

“S” hooks make belts/scarves and accessories easy to find. {Don’t you hate forgetting what you actually do own because you can’t see it or find it?}

I love that they open out, instead of fold.  I love the new paint job and pretty knobs. And I love that my cat no longer snoozes on my sweaters, covering them in fur!
What do you think?
Similar ‘S’ hooks:
Dressing Room Reveal coming soon with tons of pictures and a few more details on how my clothing and accessories went from being crammed and sharing space with ‘boy’ clothes to having a room all their own.

Organizing Your Pantry ~ My Happy House

Molly from

My Happy House
always has some great cleaning, organizational tips and DIY.  With holiday cooking and baking on the agenda, I thought you’d enjoy some helpful tips:


Up until just a few days ago, on a good day, my pantry used to look like this:

Before: 

Maximizing the pantry is key. Oh and I want it to look pretty, am I asking too much? Perhaps, but that didn’t stop me from trying. See the tips at the bottom of this post. 

 
After: 

How to achieve the pantry of my your dreams:

  1. Really only stock the items you need. I ditched a few things I really didn’t need and have a pile of stuff to donate.
  2. Visually break up the shelves. A nice balance of baskets, containers, cookbooks, and serving platters helps big time!
  3. Uniformity is somewhat key. I wasn’t about to drop $$$$ on new baskets when I had quite a few I could repurpose. I actually like the variety there, but I wanted to have all the same containers for the most part. So I spent some money on those.
  4. The wire rack on the side wall was one way to house can goods, but I needed a better solution for items I keep in bulk (diced tomatoes, chicken broth, etc.). Fridge bins work great for this! They are clear, so they go with whatever theme you have and are the perfect size since they are for soda cans.
  5. Don’t overfill the shelves. This one was hard for me to do because I really do need all the space in there, but I’ll show you something I did later that really helped with this!
  6. Make sure to use all the vertical space! The way the pantry was originally set up, there was a good couple feet above the shelf that wasn’t used because I just didn’t have that many tall items. We added the wire shelf up top, instant space. And notice on the left, where I have some serving pieces, those little “S” hooks. Again, vertical space. It still looks aesthetically pleasing by not looking crowded, but without those hooks, I’d lose an entire space for a basket.
  7. When using that top vertical space, be smart about it. I kept all the canvas baskets at the very top light in weight. Linens, chips, cereal, etc. are easy to get down without fear I’ll knock myself unconscious when I need to get them down.
  8. Keep the color scheme light. The paint we chose was some paint we had bought and weren’t able to use the perfect paint for the little closet space with no natural light. (Platinum by Ace) However, I’m pretty sure any paint would have been an upgrade from builder grade beige, and especially so seeing as the ceiling white came about 2 feet down the wall with a jagged line to finish it. Seriously builders?
Thanks so much for sharing your great tips, Molly! Perfect timing! I know that not only with the holidays do we do more cooking and baking, but with cold winter weather and shorter days, there are more home cooked meals, more comfort foods and having everything organized feels so good!

I have always, always loved the business cards that are a bit un-traditional…so I heart their rounded/circle/oval varieties. I could definitely put them to some use:)


Thanks, as always, for all the great leads on products and projects!! Ashley
